Re: Tennis Player's Worst NIGHTMARE?

I'll put them from least worst to worst:

12) Inability to speak English (a good portion of the tour)
11) Falling over in an embarrassing way
10) Minor injury (players have minor injuries all the time)
9) Dropping and hence breaking the trophy during the awards ceremony (it would suck, but doesn't take away from the fact you won the tournament)
8) Catching a cold prior to a grandslam (a cold mightn't matter too much, though a flu might)
7) Forgetting to shake hands at the end of a match (could be laughed off if was genuine forgetfulness)
6) Getting media attention for the wrong reasons (this happens quite a lot, but ideally you'd be so focused during a match you'd forget)
5) Facing your ultimate rival in a grand slam final (that would suck, especially if you had little chance to make another slam final)
4) Losing first round of a home tournament (this happens an awful lot, but it would suck )
3) Getting little sponsorship (I bet this would actually impact a lower-rank's career potentially)
2) Getting booed by the crowd (would be an awful feeling)
1) Accidentally injuring a ballkid

Re: Tennis Player's Worst NIGHTMARE?

To get injured by stepping on a tennis ball when you are warming up (just like Tommy Haas).

Re: Tennis Player's Worst NIGHTMARE?

I'd have to say worst nightmare would totally be what happened to Mary Pierce (I'd say Monica too, but her incident was kind of a once-in-a-millenium thing, while Mary's could happen even if you just landed the wrong way )
